Braddock Road Metro

Metro is advising customers on the Blue and Yellow lines of a service disruption that will affect the evening commute. The track problem was reported last hour by track personnel between Braddock Road and Reagan National Airport stations. Emergency repairs are necessary before the affected track can be returned to service.

Customers are advised of the following:

  • Until repairs are completed, Blue and Yellow line trains will share one track between Reagan National Airport and Braddock Road stations.
  • All Blue and Yellow trains will encounter delays en route and may hold for extended periods of time at stations while train traffic is moving in the opposite direction.
  • As of 4 p.m., the Metrorail Operations Control Center was reporting delays up to 45 minutes. These delays could build.
  • Due to delayed Yellow Line trains, southbound Green Line trains may encounter delays in the area of L’Enfant Plaza.

Updates will be provided as additional information becomes available.

Metrorail will open two hours early, at 5:00 AM, on Sunday, October 11, for the 31st annual Army Ten-Miler.


  • While the closest Metrorail station to the start of the race is Pentagon Station on the Blue and Yellow lines, riders are encouraged to use Pentagon City instead. Pentagon Station tends to get very crowded on race day with riders traveling to the start line. Some trains may bypass Pentagon Station due to crowding conditions.  (Pentagon City is a 0.7 mile walk to Pentagon.)
  • Please take note of service changes on the Orange & Silver lines.
  • Additional Blue Line will run between Franconia-Springfield and Stadium-Armory from 6:00 AM until 8:40 AM, and from 11:15 AM to 12:40 PM.
  • Metro recommends using a SmarTrip ® card to speed your trip. SmarTrip ® cards can be purchased at any Metrorail station entrance for $10 ($2 for the card loaded with $8 in fare value). If using a paper farecard, a $1 per-trip surcharge applies. Participants should take steps to protect paper farecards from moisture.

Metrobus service

All Metrobus service that normally operates to/from the Pentagon will be diverted to Pentagon City until approximately 2:00 p.m.. Additional staff will be on hand at Pentagon City Station to assist bus customers.

The additional two hours of service is funded through an agreement with event organizers.
